Re: In Defense of Slytherin: A Different Kind of Courage

Kudos to the author of the editorial; you've made an excellent point that even seasoned HP fans tend to ignore. Not every Slytherin is the embodiment of the House's less attractive qualities. One can be clever without being manipulative, and certainly can exhibit a certain level of courage without feeling the need to leap blindly into battle (as a 'true Gryffindor' might).

I just wanted to point out a small detail, though: Bellatrix, possibly one of the most twisted and "evil" characters in the books, is also named after a star. It could be argued that even she is not all bad, but there is little canon evidence to support that.

Still, excellent work!
